Cobb County recently launched a reverse-911 system called CodeRED high-speed notification solution. On Monday, Feb. 1, the system called every land line registered in the county encouraging people to register by visiting cobbcounty.org/911 and clicking on the CodeRED Reverse 911 Registration tab.
The system affords the ability to communicate time sensitive messages to targeted areas or the entire county. This will be especially helpful in delivering important information during an emergency. The system is only as effective as the telephone number database supporting it, so residents are strongly encouraged to add their home and mobile phone numbers.
All businesses should register, as well as residents who have unlisted numbers, changed their phone numbers or addresses within the past year or those who use cell phones or VoIP phones as their primary numbers. It is important to register cell phone numbers as well.
The information provided will only be used for emergency notification purposes. To register, visit http://www.cobbcounty.org/911
